Just want to say Winter is so sweet looking puppy. I love her.
You found her, and she found you - God Bless.
Hope to see more and more pictures of Winter.
Happy Holidays.

I did a ton of research, mostly on this tremendously helpful forum. I spoke to several exceptional breeders of uncompromising integrity. But at the end of the day, due to timing and some other factors, I selected Goldnote Golden Retrievers (Bruce Brown). Bruce seemed well regarded on this forum and his focus on socialization and matching pup to owner appealed to me. The hiccup - I live outside Washington, DC and Bruce is north of Toronto. I decided to go up to Canada to pick up the puppy.

Bruce suggested that I spend the day with him and look at three puppies. Bruce had already evaluated several pups, and based on my needs, whittled the list down to three puppies. We spent the day evaluating the puppies and took each of them to a shopping center to see how they'd respond to various situations and stimuli. I met the dams and saw all of his beautiful dogs. I thought I was going to select a little boy and ended up picking a girl.

I arrived at Goldnote Golden Retrievers at 1:00 pm and left at about 9:00 pm. Bruce invited me to a lovely dinner in his home. Bruce and his colleague Judi were incredibly gracious hosts. It was a delightful day. I learned a ton. On Tuesday morning I began the long journey home.

Several of my family and friends thought I was crazy for traveling up to Toronto (I generally didn't share that it was about a 90 minute drive north of Toronto for fear of being considered even crazier). But that was before they met the puppy, Winter. Now, no one seems to question my decision to travel so far for a puppy.

PS - I look forward to continue to learn and hopefully begin to contribute to this wonderful forum.
It was our pleasure to spend time with you "I Want a Golden", we enjoyed your visit with us very much. We appreciate your choosing one of our "babies" to be a part of your family. It has been an honour to be a part of your journey into Goldens. We wish you every success with Winter and look forward to updates about your accomplishments and challenges. Thank you so much for your lovely post about our dogs and Judi and I, we appreciate your taking the time to do this very much!
Cheers
Bruce

Hi, I have an appointment to look at Goldnote's puppies in a few days time, however I found out the sire is a PRA carrier, and the dam hasn't bee tested yet. My worry is that in case the dam is also a carrier, then the puppies will definitely be PRA affected. I wonder if anyone know how common is this condition in golden.?

Just curious if there are any restrictions on importing or exporting pets between the U.S. and Canada?

Two carriers can produce carriers, affected and clear puppies.
I'd guess if they haven't tested the dam they will dna them before they leave so they'll know. Wishing you a clear or a carrier!
